Google Json Java

Gson is a Google Open Source library to convert Java Objects into its JSON representation. Very clean and simple. 🙂

It’s my two cent for this project. I add locale option for Date format.

public GsonBuilder setDateFormat(int style,Locale locale);
public GsonBuilder setDateFormat(int dateStyle, int timeStyle, Locale locale);

Code exemple:
Gson gson = new GsonBuilder().setDateFormat(DateFormat.MEDIUM, DateFormat.SHORT,Locale.US).create();
String json = gson.toJson(Object);
